Contributions & Donations:

We live in an amazing community! Boise Schools has received many calls and emails about helping families. We ask for the community to not drop off food, hygiene or clothing donations directly at schools. Please call 208-854-4065 to coordinate donation drop off. The best way to help right now is to make a cash donation at www.boiseschoolsfoundation.com.
